What are you Reading?

Sheila over at Book Journey hosts this meme that gives you the opportunity to share the books that you have been losing yourself in lately and also the ones that you are looking forward to picking up next.

Here is what I finished:
Rescue by Anita Shreve has been on my shelf for the last two years so I finally decided to read this one.  Shreve is one of my favorite authors so I don't know why it took so long!  I enjoyed this novel and I will try to have my review up this week.

What I'm reading now:
I started listening to Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin on my iPod, but for some reason the book did not download in it's entirety.  So I decided to find the physical book to be able to finish it.  This was an awesome book and I can't wait to write my review for it.  Amazing!

What's next?
Our next book club selection is In the Land of Blue Burqas by Kate McCord.  Our group only reads one non-fiction book a year and I have a feeling this one is going to be a winner!

So what's been keeping you busy lately?  I've had so much going on in my life it has been kind of crazy.  One book I didn't list in this post is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.  This was our latest book club selection and although I didn't finish the book in its entirety before our meeting I have read it before.  I found that I loved more about that novel than the first time I read it.  I was surprised at our meeting to find that most of the ladies did not appreciate this gem as much as I did.  That is one of the great things about our book club though, how we all have different tastes and preferences.  You can read my review here if you are interested.

Have a great week everyone!

I just saw Golden Boy at the library, but did not bring it home. Look forwad to your thoughts. Have a great week.

I thought Rescue was a good read too! I haven't read anything else by Shreve yet though...

I am nearly done with two good ones (Doctor Sleep and The Interestings) and honestly, I am dreading the moment where I finish them. I really have no idea what to read after these two!

I have a few Shreve books that I haven't read yet. I'd like to read Rescue too once I've got them finished.

Hope you like your upcoming reads!
